The News Quiz is back, chaired by Miles Jupp, with guests Helen Lewis, Alun Cochrane, Desiree Burch and Andy Hamilton.

Miles Jupp and the team are back for series 99 of the long running topical panel show. And what a time it is to be a topical comedian, with Brexit finally sorted, and the political landscape wide open again, we can joke about all sorts of things. Or maybe not.

The arrest of Julian Assange, the Brexit flextension and Peppa Pig are under the magnifying glass this week. Miles' guests in the opening episode are New Statesman journalist Helen Lewis, comedians Alun Cochrane and Desiree Burch, and writer and broadcaster Andy Hamilton.
